Ahh, ok.  Perhaps it's just a matter of installing xorg-x11-xfs and
having that run?  I believe that it was disabled by default in F8.  I
haven't used any apps that still use the ancient X font setup instead
of fontconfig though, so I don't really know what the best solution
for making fonts work for those apps is these days.

Thanks for the tip. It didn't entirely solve the problem but I think now I know how to proceed. Thanks for the help!
